I have not done with posts about my great trip to Seattle to tour amazing gardens with 70+ garden writers and bloggers, but I am so happy to be home and to see the glories of lily season. Our Daylily Bank is now in full bloom and it got a lot of attention when the Heath Gourmet Club was here on Saturday night to enjoy a delicieux dinner a la Francais.
The Black Beauty lilies have been blooming in the Herb Bed right in front of the house for several years, along with a crimson bee balm. A great, but unintentional combo.
Last year I got a little bloom from Lilium henryi (gold) and the White Henry lilies, but this year they are putting on quite a show. There is another white lily with a deep red throat in this group. I don’t know what it is, but I think it was a bonus that came along with a big order I sent Old House Gardens that does have wonderful bulbs.
If you do want to see some of the wonderful sights of Seattle log on to my friend Layanee de Merchant’s post.
Or see what Francis at Fairegarden had to say about other damp scenes at the Bloedel Reserve.

Lovely lilies, Pat! It was great to see you again in Seattle and get to chat a bit, not enough!, more. Thanks for the linkage. So much to see, but coming home to those lilies seems the perfect topping to the travel sundae.
Your lilies are fabulous. I just love seeing them. I would like to get a mess of these growing in my garden too.
Frances – I’m glad you didn’t mind the link. You always tell such a great story.
Lisa – The daylilies at least are totally carefree.
What a glorious picture your lilies make…I miss New England in the summer.
Faye – Lilies just sing of summer, don’t they?
Wow Pat! Just lovely!!
